It is expected that a unified BHP would have its primary listing on the ASX, a standard listing on the London Stock Exchange (LSE), a secondary listing on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE), and a sponsored Level II ADR program on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).

loganair , It is not what I saw as shown hereunder . a bit long - sorry . It was a series of announcements from BHP on Tuesday with a lot of naughts and a historic, company-changing restructure that will see a long-term boost to the value of the company’s share price. BHP will pay shareholders a $US2 a share final dividend, sell its oil and gas business to Woodside, start the huge Jansen potash project in Canada as a replacement and end dual listing of the company in London and bring the vastly changed company back under its Australian listing. The company will sell its oil and gas business to Woodside in a $US17 billion deal (see separate story on that deal and the Jansen go-ahead). The final dividend is more than three times the 65 cents a share paid for 2019-20 and shareholders can thank booming iron ore and copper prices for that boost, along with an assist from its about to be sold oil and gas business. The record final dividend takes BHP’s returns to shareholder to more than $US15 billion for the full year to June 30 – that more than $A20 billion. BHP reported a profit from operations for the year of a record $US25.9 billion, up 80% and underling earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation of $US37.4 billion. That was a record gross profit margin of 64% on total revenues for the year of $US60.817 billion. The attributable profit of $US11.3 billion was not an accurate indication of the bottom line for the company. That’s because that figure includes an exceptional loss of $US5.8 billion predominantly related to the impairments of the potash and energy coal assets, and the current year impact of the Samarco dam failure). Underlying attributable profit for the year was $US17.1 billion, up 88% from the Covid hit 2019-20 year (especially the June, 2020 half year). In yesterday’s statement the company said its strategy is to deliver long-term value and returns through the cycle. “We aim to do this through owning a portfolio of world class assets with exposure to highly attractive commodities which benefit from the mega-trends playing out in the world around us, by operating them exceptionally well, by maintaining a disciplined approach to capital allocation and through being industry leaders in sustainability and the creation of social value. “As the world continues to evolve, BHP is positioning itself to benefit from the mega-trends and through sustainability leadership,” the company said in the statement. Besides the Woodside deal, the Jansen go ahead, the higher profit and record dividend, the ending of the dual listing with London is a major development. BHP says the move will “unify our corporate structure under BHP’s existing Australian parent company to realise simplification and enhanced strategic flexibility benefits.” That will end 20 years as a dual listed company (along with Rio Tinto). The structure was put in place when BHP merged with the London-based South African focused Billiton. Shareholders in the Plc company listed in London will be taken onto the Australian register and their shares will be quoted here in Australian dollars. They will get Australian shares on a one for one basis. Many UK institutions won’t like that because of the currency changes – the London shares are quoted in sterling. London holders will whine in moan through the likes of the Financial Times, and other UK media. The company had net debt at of just $US4.1 billion, compared to $US12.0 billion at June 2020. “In light of our announcement to pursue a merger of our Petroleum business with Woodside, we will be reviewing our net debt target and will provide an update with our interim results for the 2022 financial year in February 2022,” BHP said. Some analysts took t

kipper99, yes , I think it is not yet a done deal but likely to go through . hard to put a number on anything now as base metal prices hit today on LME and BHP in OZ will get hit again for sure and it might flow through to BHP in uk on thursday . My timing to buy in oz was really off ( wry smile ) .

Incorrect - BHP are delisting from the FTSE Premium market and going to the FTSE Standard listing. This means BHP will no longer be included in the FTSE index and therefore tracker funds will have to sell, however no real change for the average UK PI. BHP share holders are going to be given new shares in Woodside Petroleum who are currently only listed on the AEX, however Woodside are saying that they are now looking to list on other oversea exchanges which most probably means they'll also go for a FTSE Standard listing.

Also, i did a Google search for BHP & selected News. There are a few articles giving the impression that the Woodside sale might not be quite so popular.... Maybe it's not such a 'done' deal....

BHP unexpected announcement that it plans to unify its dual-listed company (DLC) structure and shift its primary listing to Australia has had a mixed response, while the mining giant’s exit from petroleum increases the possibility of acquisitions elsewhere. “We view the exit from Petroleum as a good strategic step, although we see limited valuation uplift from the proposed structure and it leaves BHP short on growth options,” said Deutsche Bank analyst Liam Fitzpatrick. “Petroleum houses a large share of BHP's near-medium term growth projects and exit from this business increases the likelihood of copper and nickel acquisitions, in our view.”

Well, that's a 12% drop from the high yesterday of £25 Just topped up @ £22 dead to raise my holding here. Previous buys @ 1,999 & 2,014. £10k in now. May go lower tomorrow, who knows.& may buy again. Feel reasonably ok with these with the mega divi XD in 10 day's. Hoping for a run & quick cap gain..... Good luck all

Basically BHP will become an Iron Ore, Copper, Nickel and Potash for fertilizer miner with some Gold and Silver from their investment in Solgold, Zinc and Lead thrown in for good measure.

Action, scroll back & someone gave a good answer to this question yesterday The upcoming divi of $2 is c£1.45 That's roughly 6.5% @ £22 SP I think a lot of buying will raise the share price on the run up to XD on 2 Sept. 10 trading day's left to watch what happens. Not sure i'll get my 2,050 Although futures off another 5% in US. See how that impacts us @ 2:30pm on open

sp hit today after a steep fall in oz .i bought in oz near the close but regret it now as base metal prices falling again today and will mean BHP in OZ will fall again on wednesday . At some point BHP here should be a screaming buy as discount will almost disappear when converted on a 1:1 basis as I understand it

These touched £25 yesterday on bumper results & dividend. SP now 2,265 here & dropped almost 8% in US yesterday. Am in at 1,999 & 2,014 but only for £5k Very tempted to top up as I can see the share price rising as buyers move in for the $2 divi XD on 2 Sept. So possibly may rise again off that to reach £25+

Not having a primary listing in the UK can mean there might be a discount to the ASX price, OK, but the dividend is the same so what happens to the yield if you buy at a discount - no need to throw the baby out with the bath water. FTSE100 trackers will have to adjust but that can be an opportunity for others.

Wait to see if Woodside list in London. I can't see them not doing so, doesn't make sense.

I just contacted my broker, iWeb. They say they do not 'trade' ASX but i would be able to 'hold' Woodside shares in my account. So, with them, i would have to transfer to another provider to sell....

Thanks Gateside and loss-leader. Hold BHP in ISA with Int. Inv. Don't want to sell and will check re: charges for holding.
